The Castle on Main Wedding and Event Venue to Open Friday in Monsterland's Old Space

A year ago at this time, the old Monsterland in Mesa was abuzz with all sorts of freaky and frightening activity. These days, however, the scene at the location that formerly housed the now-defunct haunted attraction is just as lively, although things are a bit more bright and cheery than before.

The Castle on Main, a medieval-themed wedding and events venue, has taken over the downtown Mesa space that once was home to Monsterland and will hold its grand opening on Friday evening. And there's nary any ghouls or goblins inside the place.
